I can actually help you with that! Steve Artandi (Stanford University) is working on telomeres. You might be able to talk to one of his students... Email me at gvandova@stanford.edu if you are interested.

No I am not but I know the principle. You should just read this paper and try see whether you believe the interpretation of their data. Also just wait to see what other people might say about that.

mm that's a good question. My first thought would be no, as eukaryotic cells are in general capable of recombination. I am not really familiar with mosquitoes, but would assume that applies for them as well. But again, it might be possible that there are telomere-specific recombination enzymes. Worth looking into.

Yeah, I think this is a good backup.

comment Using PSI-BLAST
Yes, each time you iterate a new PSSM is formed. You might want to use it if you would want to identify homologs that are undetectable by simple BLAST.

comment Does the MS2 RNA binding protein have any translational repression effects?
Oh I see now... Interesting idea. Worth exploring. Why don't you use Cas9?
